/ Athlete Registration

All Holland Christian Middle School and High School Athletes are required to register online through a program we are partnered with called Final Forms. This online registration is how all students sign up for school sports teams. For co-op teams and a few non-MHSAA teams, athletes may need to be registered on Holland Christian’s Final Forms registration AND another school/organization registration separately (meaning 2 registrations).  Our community benefits from this registration by streamlining our athletic physical process, managing important data, allowing efficient access for coaches and staff, improving communication and collecting pay to participate fees online. FinalForms allows you to complete and sign all athletic participation forms and saves your data from season-to-season and year-to-year… meaning you should never have to enter the same information twice!

Registration includes both a parent account and a student account.  The parent account is required to verify registration information each school year (or create a new account for first time parents or athletes) and must select from available sports for their child.  Both the parent account and student account needs to sign all required forms to be eligible.

The annual MHSAA physical form is included in the registration.  Completing the annual physical is a requirement for eligibility for in-season athletes.  The form needs to be printed from the parent account for your MD/DO/PA/NP to perform the required physical and sign it.  The parent then needs to either scan it to download on their computer or take a quality picture of it with a mobile device and upload the file on the “My Students” page on their account by using their respective child’s document upload button.  Holland Christian only needs the physical form uploaded and NOT all health history information.  Staff will review uploads and approve physicals on individual accounts periodically.  If for some reason a parent is unable to upload their child’s physical form, it needs to be dropped off at the child’s respective middle school or high school office.  The MHSAA physical must be completed on or after April 15, but before a student can participate in a practice or try-out for an official season during the school year.
*There is not an MHSAA health questionnaire option for the 21-22 school year.  A full physical must be completed.
*Due to COVID protocols, there is no annual HC physical night option for the 21-22 school year.
*If you are unable to see your primary care provider (MD/DO/NP/PA) before the start of the next sports season, Holland Hospital’s “Walk-In” Care ($40) is an option (www.hollandhospital.org/hh/hh-walk-in-care.aspx).

All parents of middle school and high school athletes will eventually need to register in order to participate, but are highly encouraged to register in April of the preceding year (registration opens April 1st).  Registration assists athletes and parents in receiving a variety of communications including summer opportunities specifically for the sports they are registered for.

Students are required to have a school issued email account.  ZCMS, Unity, and Black River email accounts are accepted along with HC email accounts.  If the student is a transfer, they will be issued their Holland Christian school email account in early August and will need to wait to complete their portion of the registration until they receive this account.  The parent account registers students for specific sports and completes the physical form process apart from the student account, but when the student email confirmed the student can sign forms and begin receiving communication along with their parent.
*ZCMS students transitioning from 8th to 9th grade need to change their email to their new HC account when they receive it in August.

/ PHYSICAL NIGHT & IMPACT TESTING

PHYSICAL NIGHT

Holland Christian MS & HS typically offers a discounted physical night for the upcoming school year in April, but due to COVID protocols, the physical night in April 2021 has been cancelled.  We hope to offer a physical night opportunity in April 2022.

IMPACT TESTING

Holland Christian High School uses ImPACT as a tool in the athletic training toolbox to assist a safe return for athletes to their respective sport after a sustained concussion. Every athlete who participates in a sport at Holland Christian High School must have an ImPACT baseline concussion test completed prior to the start of the school year, which is then valid for 2 years.  Athletes are baseline tested for their 9th grade year and retested for their 11th grade year. New 10th and 12th grade athletes need a “catch-up” baseline test completed to participate.  Due to current restrictions with COVID-19, athletes will receive a uniquely assigned link emailed directly from ImPACT “support” to complete their baseline test at home.  Athletes will have 90 days to complete the test after it is emailed to them, but need to complete it before participating in any sport.
